    Ok, I did a search and I saw about 2 topics that where kinda related to mine. Forgive me for starting a new one, but the other topics didnt quite help me out.

    Anyways, I just about an Artec Artec 12X DVD+/-RW Drive, Model VOM-12E48X. It came with OEM Nero. So anyways, I installed it. I was sucessfull in burning a DVD+R the first time. But now, when i try to burn anything on a CD-R like a few movies on VCD, Nero seems to get stuck. So i try to shut it down and it wont shut down. It becomes "Not responding". Its so bad that any program that I try to shut down does not respond either. I have to do a Hard Shut Down. Its becoming a pain in the ass.

    Ive tried burning VCD, SCVD on a CD-R and it gets stuck. Ive updated to Nero 6 latest version, same crap, it keeps getting stuck and not responding requiring a hard shut down. If anyone can help me out I would be very grateful.

    My comp specs are
    2500+ AMD proc
    768 MB DDR ram
    40 GB HD
    Artec DVD+/-RW burner
    and using Nero version 6

    Edit:

    I also want to add that Ive tried Mr.Tazz's .bat nero file with no avail. :(

    Please help

    Have you tried a complete reinstall of Nero?

    Do you have Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator installed?

    Yes, ive done a complete reinstall of nero using the clean tools aswell.

    Yes, I have defragged lately.

    Ive noticed the problem being that I can burn on DVD+R's but not on a CD-R or CD-RW's....wonder whats up with that. Thats weird.

    You didn't happen to erase a cd-rw with XP's Imapi software did you?

    It can read CD's because the Nero package I got which was OEM came with the drive. It worked fine installing it.

    No I dont have Roxio

    No, I dont believe I erased anything with WinXP Imapi software. I havent touched XP's tools to burn anything.

    I just bought the drive like 2 days ago in hopes to burn some DVD's CD-R's and Make some SVCD's and VCD's.
    Thanks for everyones help so far. I appreciate it.
